Kevin Streelman, to an extent at least, has been unfairly held up by some as the poster boy to what changes should be to the FedExCup points system. All he’s done, though, is play well when it’s mattered the most -- his tie for third at The Barclays matched his best finish of the season.
“"It seems the only people who have a problem with it are sports writers," Streelman said Thursday.
Well, those arguments against Streelman could be about to fly out the window. He’s 2 under through four holes here in the second round and has climbed into a tie for fifth at the moment. And should Streelman end up finishing in the top 10, it would be his fifth top-10 of the season.
“If you have a good year and you're top 10 [in points], you're pretty much going to get to the TOUR Championship,” Streelman said. “If you want to truly call this a playoff system, then you should have to compete well in the Playoffs to get to the World Series of our sport." -- Brian Wacker
